Empowerment of Women Migrant Workers of Nepal
PDF File Size: 6.24 MB | Download   
Nepal has witnessed high levels of foreign labour migration since the last two decades. The remittance these migrant workers generate account for almost one quarter of the country's GDP, with 11 per cent of this total coming from women migrant workers1. The impact of these financial resources on the country's development is so significant they have been acknowledged for their contributions to Nepal's remarkable progress towards achieving its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 2 . However, the people whose efforts help strengthen the national economy, the migrant workers, continue to face multiple challenges throughout the migration cycle, and women's vulnerability raises a number of serious concerns.
